Salvatore
Salvatore,
This is the best whiskey I’ve ever had. I can’t believe how smooth it is...almost creamy. Only reason I don’t give it a 10 is because I haven’t tried more expensive brands.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, Blended Irish Whiskey that has an aromatic birth with notes of spice, oak, peach, grain, poached pear, coffee bean, lemon, mint leaf & yellow plum; while a rich & creamy life adds notes of barley, caramel, banana fritters, charred oak, citrus oils & floral butterscotch; that leads to a long & complex death with notes of dark honeyed cereals, cedar, green apple & pepper.

Christopher
Christopher,
Very smooth and vanilla is the most forward flavor. I’m not sure I’d call it “spicy.” The finish is almost like a cobbler. Really tasty, but I think there are other comparable whiskeys for 1/3 the price.
 
Jay
Jay,
Maybe I don't know the difference between "spicy" and "harsh" (or whatever the opposite of smooth is). I wouldn't say it was that smooth and had more burn than I was expecting. (which, less burn = smooth to me) Maybe that's wrong. It would be fine at $40 but not $200. Not saying it's bad but not what I was expecting.

Harold
Harold,
Well worth the price. I’ve sampled a lot of high end spirits. This is one of the smoothest, creamy whiskey’s I’ve drank.

This was by far the smoothest Irish Whiskey I’ve ever tasted. I can’t wait to get my hands on another bottle
 
Stephen
Stephen,
I've always been a big fan of the Midleton family of Irish whiskeys. 'Up 'til now, the Crockett issue has been my favorite. Very Rare rates a close enough second, that I'll gladly substitute one for another when one is unavailable.

Completely smooth and full of flavor

Ken,
When you the packaging on most products, they all claim to be the best, but Midleton is definitely the pinnacle of Irish Whiskey. Full of flavor and smooth as silk. It has all the things yo want in an amazing pour, none of the things you don't. Most certainly a real treat!
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Spicy nose. Pepper. Vanilla. Bourbon. Ginger. Smooth. Medium finish fruit
 
Andras
Andras,
Irish Whiskey is always a tough cookie. Either too smooth or too sweet. This one is for sure a blend, but probably the best. It takes all the best from the ingredients and yields the most balanced Irish stuff. Not a daily dram, this is the Chirstmas Special.
 
Zane
Zane,
This whiskey makes me wish I were more successful so that I could afford to drink it every day.

Together with Barry Crocket and Redbreast 21 Year Old, this completes the Irish Whiskey Trinity. And absolute gem of a drink, and very collectible.

Joseph
Joseph,
Fantastic whiskey. The sweet vanilla aroma and taste of the whiskey make this drink by far one of the best whiskey's I have tasted. Always find my way getting my hands on this whiskey.

So smooth and amazing!
 
James
James,
I've now had the 2003 and 2017 release of this liquid gold. Truly one of the best Whiskeys I've ever tasted. The 2003 had a bit more of a vanilla flavor than the 2017 but both are fantastic. At first the 2017 was frustratingly smooth, if that is a thing. But after the 3rd sip the flavor started to pile up and what a treat! It is so smooth my wife even enjoyed an entire glass with me!

Ken,
Had this at my local Irish pub on St. Patrick's day and it was amazing. So smooth, and absolutely delicious!

Wesley
Wesley,
This is one heck of a whiskey. The best Irish Whiskey I have tasted. There are certainly older Irish whiskies but are they available to the masses? I think not. This is one heck of a big creamy vanilla bomb. Yes there is oak. Just enough spice to remind you that it’s whiskey you’re drinking. Did I say there’s vanilla? Oh yes and more creamy vanilla.
